Installing glib and libfwbuilder

HI, have a problem, can't seem to install libfwbuilder. It says i need to install glib-1.2.8. Ok, downloaded it and installed. tried libfwbuilder again and got this error msg:

checking for glib-config... /usr/local/bin/glib-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.8...
*** 'glib-config --version' returned 1.2.8, but GLIB (1.2.10)
*** was found! If glib-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLIB. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If glib-config was wrong, set the environment variable GLIB_CONFIG
*** to point to the correct copy of glib-config, and remove the file config.cache
*** before re-running configure
configure: error: Cannot find GLIB: Please install Version 1.2.8+

I am running mandrake linux 10.0

did you installed from rpm?
if yes, then you have glib-1.2.8 but you need the headers for it too. these are included in glib-devel-1.2.8. so download glib-devel-1.2.8.ix86.rpm and install it. watch out: glib-devel-version has to match exactly to glib-version.

cheers, boby
